LSTSH: NPQ DfE portal now open!

We are pleased to let you know that the DfE portal is now open. Before you complete your application you need to register on the Dfe Portal.

Once you have done this, you will be sent a link to an application form from the Teacher Development Trust.

Please make sure:

  • You have your TRN number to hand. If you are not sure what this is, guidance can be found here.

  • We would recommend that you use a work email address when registering for the programme as emails can often go into the junk mail of personal email addresses.

  • Your Lead Provider is the Teacher Development Trust

 Please complete this stage at your earliest convenience.
